Encourage your child’s imagination to soar with our Engineering programs in St. Albert and tap into his or her love of tinkering with gadgets and building structures. Our interactive courses give kids the opportunity to have fun and stretch their creative muscles while mastering a variety of engineering concepts. Buddying up with a partner, kids take on a new project each session, such as designing and building one of seven possible bridge types using K’NEX® pieces or constructing a machine with LEGO® bricks. It’s an effective way to get comfortable with 21st century skills that are critical for success in the classroom and beyond!
